Fullback Ryan D’Imperio, whom the Giants signed when training camp opened on July 26, informed the team this morning he is retiring from football. He was placed on the reserve/retired list.
Taking his place will be fullback Ben Guidugli, 6-1, 242 lbs. Guidugli spent most of the 2011 season on the practice squad of the St. Louis Rams, who signed him as a rookie free agent on July 28 of that year. He was added to the active roster for the season’s final game, but was inactive. Guidugli, who played at the University of Cincinnati, was waived by the Rams last Aug. 31, and did not play in 2012.
Henry Hynoski, the team’s starting fullback, is on the physically unable to perform list after undergoing knee surgery in May. The team has not provided any updates or estimates as to when Hynoski will be ready to return to practice.
